Default Internet Cafe on the Amsterdam

Is the internet cafe on the Amsterdam reliable? We are considering a cruise from San Deigo to Santiago Chile and would need to be able to have a reiliable internet connection with home. Thanks for any info....Bob

I have sailed the Amsterdam in Alaska and made daily use of the Internet Cafe. It operates via satellite and therefore has a few second delay between clicks. I had no problem sending and recieving email daily, but you may want to consider one of the package plans for internet use. Per minute charges will add up if you are a slow typist! Also keep in mind, in Chile, while cruising the fjords, you may have periods where satellite coverage may be blacked out. The internet manager can advise of any expected areas / times this may happen.

We were on Amsterdam for this past Christmas and New Year's cruises and I used the cafe often. I found it very reliable and in the two weeks, never encountered the satelite "being down".

The packages they offer are: 100 minutes for $55 plus a one-time $3.95 start up fee;

250 minutes for $100 plus the start up fee.

I think the per minute charge is about 70 cents.
